Abstract:

The Supplier contract will run for seven years from the date of signature, subject to break clauses and resource availability. The total budget available for the services to be provided under this contract will be up to £58.40 million (inclusive of all applicable taxes).

i. A further £30 million of funds will be reserved and may be allocated across the programme to high performing activities - based on recommendations from an independent mid-term evaluation at the end of Year 3 of the contract.

ii. An additional £25 million scale-up option will also be available – subject to a Business Case Addendum and and based on a review in the last two years of the programme – should it prove to have a strong impact and the potential to yield better results. Any scale-up shall be subject to a maximum additional budget of £55 million.

iii. Up to 3-year time extension based on recommendations from a review in the last two years of the programme, subject to a maximum contract length of 10 years.

The assignment will be divided into three phases:

1. A 9-month Inception Phase – to confirm programme design, to undertake a series of analytical studies and to launch pilot initiatives

2. A 72-month Implementation Phase

3. A 3-month Closure and Learning Phase – following delivery of programme results by December 2029 – to responsibly close-down and exit the programme.

Key characteristics and skills we are seeking in a Supplier will be discussed and details contained in the TORs. FCDO would welcome the participation of both national and international organisations.
